Those of us who are highly connected to the spiritual world deal with paranormal encounters on a daily basis. In the beginning this would often wear me out because one, I didn't have a firm understanding of what was actually happening and two, I had very little control initially over when or who I would connect with. Who you are connecting with is very important because there are many different energy sources out there. This is a fact I've always found extremely interesting because many people don't realize there are different types of energies you can stumble upon in these meetings. For example, there is a difference between a ghost and a spirit. Ghosts are spirits that have not passed over to the other side. Due to their inability to pass, an encounter with a ghost usually leaves us feeling shaken or can be described as eery, unsettling or traumatic. It is definitely not necessarily a positive connection. The energy of a ghost is that of unrest, they are usually searching for answers or trying to complete any unfinished business with someone still living. What I most often connect with is spirits. Spirits are souls that were able to pass over to the other side and usually only return to bring guidance to loved ones. More often than not when I am able to connect with any spirits I feel an overwhelming sense of peace. Usually this feeling of peace, I believe, is meant to make me feel comfortable and at ease. I like to describe myself as the inbox between the spirit and their loved ones. Spirits use me as a middle man to get their messages out there and thankfully because of this they often approach me in a very gentle and calming manner.
An encounter with a demonic presence is an entirely different story. Through my studies I have had the privilege to witness and participate in demon extractions and let me tell you just from their energy alone many people can find themselves getting physically ill. When a demonic spirit enters a room there is no denying their presence. While my personal experience with them has been limited I can say that they are extremely draining. The first time I witnessed a demonic extraction I left the room feeling completely depleted. So you can only imagine how much an individual can be affected by a demon if they have no idea what they are experiencing or are totally unfamiliar with the spiritual world.
Don't get me wrong. I understand that to a skeptic a lot of this information can sound like a plot from a Ghostbuster film but if you find yourself constantly noticing unexplained smells or feeling as though someone is touching you when no one is around there is a good chance someone is trying to get in touch with you. I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say it again but the more information you know the better off you will be. The more you know the easier it is to notice the signs of paranormal activity around you.
